This is the MOST IMPORTANT book ever written. Essential to ALL Politcal Thought! Welcome to the future? Maybe not. All the laws are in place to Transform AMERICA into this NIGHTMARE!
This book is always up there as one of the best of all time and for good reason as it has influenced so many sayings, Big Brother, Orwellian, This is obviously not a uplifting story, but the amazing thing is how well it has kept up with the times- we actually have the technology to do everything that the totalitarian regime was doing.
The only difference is that in our time it is the proletariat that seems to be recording everything we do.
The narrator was a little dry and frankly a little creepy- which I think added to the story because the story itself was a little dry and creepy.
I loved this book since the first time I read it in grade school. I think that is should be required reading in every level of today's education so that we don't end up like the people of Oceania
If you enjoy watching a government slowly destroy humanity and crush the human spirit, this book is for you.
In all seriousness, this is an incredible book, George Orwell is a literary master. Just don't expect a happy ending.
This book changed my way of thinking. Of how I listen to, question, and accept information. It has changed me. But this book needs no more praise. It is a classic. The narrator was perfect in every sense of the word. I wouldn't not have another one. Fantastic. I love this book.
